Great Shop Name: Made me laugh

But not associated with their (almost) namesake I guess?

What a great smile starter this image is:

Singhsbury's, Wallasey
Going to have to visit it one day - excellent or what?

It took me a while to figure this one out until I asked a friend who used to live in G.B. She says this is funny because of a similar sounding name used by a chain of grocery stores in England - Sainsbury's. Here in the U.S. the small shop owner would probably get sued by the larger chain. I say something else, that's because the suffix "-bury" derives from the Anglo-Saxon "burh," meaning "a fort or fortified place."

Since the Singhs might be Sikh, and the Sikhs historically were warriors, I thought it appropriate they have a fort.
